Five Cents, Coin Type from United States - detailed information

Five Cents, Coin Type from United States (issued 1792 - )
Coin TypeFive Cents

The United States Five Cents coin (written as ) is a unit of currency equalling one-twentieth of a United States dollar. 1792 Half Disme (as it was initially called) was the first denomination of the dollar issued into circulation. Renamed to a Half Dime, it was a silver coin from 1794 until 1873, with several changes of design.

Between 1794 and 1805, the value and denomination were not shown and the coin and had to be inferred from its size.

Silver was eventually replaced by a copper-nickel piece officially named Five Cents (most often just called a nickel) introduced in 1866, which has also undergone several design changes since then. The denomination has also been used for issuing some circulating commemorative types.

Five Cent coins have been struck by several different mints:
- Philadelphia Mint, 1792 to present; no mint mark 1792 - 1942 and 1945 - 1979, letter P 1942 - 1945 and 1980 - present
- New Orleans Mint, 1838 to 1860, mint mark O
- San Francisco Mint, 1863 to present (from 1972 - collector coins only), mint mark S
- Denver Mint, 1912 to present, mint mark D
- West Point Mint, 2020 (collector coins only), mint mark W

There have been a number of obverse designs during the history of the denomination.

The first design showed a portrait of Liberty with flowing hair, facing left. The legend around it was LIB · PAR · OF SCIENCE & INDUSTRY · (abbreviated from "Liberty, Parent of Science and Industry" - the first motto of the United States). This was only issued in 1792.

The second design (1794 and 1795) showed a different portrait of Liberty with flowing hair, this time facing right. I was surround ed by 13 stars, representing the first states forming the United States. The inscription above was LIBERTY, and the date of issue was below.

The third obverse (1796 - 1805) shows a draped bust of Liberty facing right, again surrounded by 13 stars, with LIBERTY above and the date of issue below.

The fourth obverse (1829 - 1837) shows a "Capped Liberty" - Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap. The inscription LIBERTY is on a band across the cap. Again, there are 13 stars around, and the date is below.

The fifth obverse (1837 - 1873) shows a seated depiction of Liberty who is holding a Liberty pole surmounted by a Phrygian cap (a type of cap which in Ancient Rome was worn by freed slaves). With her right hand, she supports the Union Shield, which has thirteen vertical stripes, white and red, with a blue horizontal bar on top. The colours are represented by heraldic hatching (thin lines indicating the colour - horizontal stripes for blue, vertical for red, no stripes for white). Across the shield, a diagonal banner inscribed with the word LIBERTY. Below, the date of issue. In 1837 only, there was a plain background; after that, there were 13 stars surrounding the figure. The stars were replaced by the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA in 1860.

The first copper-nickel coins were issued in parallel with the silver half dimes for a time. Between 1866 and 1883, the obverse shows a rendition of the Union Shield from the Great Seal of the United States, with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST around above and the date of issue below.

The seventh obverse (1883 - 1913) is known as the "Liberty Head" and has a portrait of Liberty at centre, facing left and surrounded by 13 stars, with the date of issue below. The word LIBERTY is inscribed on a diadem in her hair.

The eighth obverse (1913 - 1938), known as the "Indian Head Nickel" shows the portrait of an American Indian man facing right, his plaited hair hanging below his shoulder, with a decoration of two large bird feathers hanging down in the back. Around right, the inscription LIBERTY. The date of issue: [year], is in relief on the Indian's shoulder. Incuse below that, a small letter F represents the initial of the sculptor, James E. Fraser.

Coins issued from 1939 to present are known as "Jefferson Nickels", as they all feature a portrait of Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826) - the third President of the United States (1801 - 1809).

From 1939 to 2004, the obverse featured a left-facing portrait of Jefferson, his long hair tied behind his back with a ribbon. Around left, the motto IN GOD WE TRUST. Around right, LIBERTY and the date of issue.

In 2005 only, there was a right-facing portrait of Thomas Jefferson. On these coins, "Liberty" is written in his own handwriting, taken from his draft of the Declaration of independence.

From 2006 to present, the obverse displays a facing portrait of Jefferson, with "Liberty" still in his own handwriting.

Reverse
United States / Five Cents - reverse photo

There have been a number of reverse designs during the history of the denomination.

The first design showed a flying eagle as its main device. The denomination was given as HALF DISME - the only time the word was used. The legend was abbreviated as UNI · STATES OF AMERICA. This was only issued in 1792.

The second design (1794 - 1797) showed a standing eagle surrounded by a wreath, with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around.

The third reverse (1800 - 1805) shows a "heraldic" eagle, with the Shield of the Great Seal of the United States on its breast. The eagle clutches a scroll with the motto E pluribus unum ("Out of Many, One"), a bundle of seven arrows in its right talon, and an olive branch in its left talon. Over its head there appears a "glory" with of clouds and 13 mullets (stars). Around, the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

The fourth reverse (1829 - 1837) shows a standing eagle holding arrows and an olive branch. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is around above and the value and denomination are shown as 5 C. below.

The fifth reverse (1837 - 1873) shows the value and denomination at centre, on two lines and written in words: HALF DIME. It is surrounded by a wreath. Between 1837 and 1859 this is a laurel wreath, with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. It was redesigned to show a more ornate (and larger) wreath between 1860 and 1873, when the legend was moved to the obverse.

The first copper-nickel coins were issued in parallel with the silver half dimes for a time. Between 1866 and 1883, the reverse shows a large numeral 5 for the value at centre, surrounded by 13 stars; in 1866 only, there were rays separating the stars. The denomination CENTS is around below, and the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is around above.

The seventh reverse (1883 - 1913) is known as the "V Nickel", as it hs a Roman numeral: V for the value 5, and the denomination CENTS below. The value is surrounded by a wreath; the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM is above, and the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is around above in larger letters. During the first part of 1883, the word "CENTS" was omitted and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" was below; this however lead to people gilding the coins and passing them as gold 5 dollars, so the design was quickly changed.

The eighth reverse (1913 - 1938), known as the "Buffalo Nickel", shows an American bison (colloquially known as a buffalo, thus giving the coin its name), with its head lowered, standing to left. Around above, the legend UNITED · STATES · OF · AMERICA. Below that, to the right and above the buffalo's back, on three lines the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM. In the exergue, the value and denomination in words: FIVE CENTS.

The ninth definitive obverse was introduced with the introduction of the "Jefferson Nickel" type in 1939 and features Thomas Jefferson's house Monticello. Below, its name: MONTICELLO. Around below that, the value and denomination in words: FIVE CENTS. Around above, the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM. Around below in larger letters, the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
The design was updated in 2006, retaining all original elements with a modernised rendition.
